All this said, my son is turning 3 and this book was part of his birthday gift from my mom because he loves butterflies. We've so far read it about 6-7 times since we've had it, and that's basically 3 days in a row at bedtime. It's been his book choice. So it passed the "toddler bits who like butterflies" test. And he's starting to pick up the life cycle, point out the cacoon, and sometimes he'll sort of tell me the story or he'll tell his own variation of it.
So it's cute and he's learning from it. I just wish that the authors trusted that children, even young ones, are OK picking up some vocabulary. I'm a child development major and i do see myself eventually using this in class.
Text asks children to draw inferences.
Story doesn't end with catapillar becoming a butterfly but the life cycle is completed when the butterfly lays eggs and new little catapillars are born.
Anna Milbourne has down wonderful work.
